Z. Coleman & Sons Reviews (4)
Revdex.com spoke to Eric and the following was relayed: I am still willing to go and repair in the spring when the weather permits. I will stop by the daughter's today to discuss.
Revdex.com spoke to Eric at business and the following was relayed: I did it for a lot less than I should have. They got a great deal on it. There were a couple of minor things that I said I would return for. I may be able to take care of this week or if not I am willing to address them in the spring.
have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted], and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below. First, Mr. Coleman is the one who set the price, not me. he looked at the job at least the times prior to drafting the contract. He also raised his price unexpectedly by $100 the day before starting the work, without objection. Second, I disagree with Mr Coleman's contention that there are minor issues related to the work he did. The quality of the job is NOT up to the standards of any reputable paving firm. The work performed was noit done as indicated by his own signed, written contact. Finally, Mr. Coleman has previously stated at least three tines he would return to correct the problems with his work. He has failed to do so each time. I have no reason to believe he will fulfill his promise, nor do I have any confidence in his ability to correct the faulty workmanship not the the driveway has completely set. Mr. Coleman's response clearly shows that he is upset with the price we paid for the work. A price HE set. As a result, he feels it is OK to have done a lousy job, and that he has no responsibility to do the work promised in his contact. At this point, I plan to get estimates from reputable paving firms to fix Mr. Coleman's shoddy work, and take legal action against him to recover the cost of the repairs.
Review: On June 14, 2013 I signed a contract with [redacted], doing business as Z. [redacted] & sons out of Syracuse, NY. The contract was to install a driveway at my residence. I paid about 60% as a good faith payment with the remainder to be paid upon completion. The completion date was to be June 16, 2013.On June 22, 2013 I advanced Mr. [redacted] $400.00 more. He stated he lost my original down payment and needed to rent equipment in order to expedite my driveway installation. Because he was highly recommended and his work in the area was top notch I trusted him to fulfill his obligations.The install was postponed due to excessive rain. The time extension was verbally agreed upon. Mr. [redacted] arrived sometime before July 4th and scraped the driveway and put down the stone for a base. He had hi phone number changed and when called the message was "The mailbox is full and cannot accept any more messages. Goodbye."Since that date I have tried repeatedly to contact Mr. [redacted]. He did not return my calls. He made no attempt to contact me what so ever until July 26, 2013, I believe. He fed me a story about being in the hospital after suffering a heart attack. I expressed my concern for his health, but I also mentioned that the completion date was almost 6 weeks ago. He then promised completion in eight days August 3, 2013. I have not heard or seen Mr. [redacted] since July 26, 2013.This man is unreliable and he makes false promises and makes no attempt to meet his contract obligations.Desired Settlement: I am seeking a refund of all monies advanced minus any proof of cost to Mr. [redacted] for the stone he installed. I am requesting any future monies be reimbursed that arise from Mr. [redacted]s breach of contract. i.e Litigation costs.
